Almost every political leader uses social media and blogging platforms to influence the mob or public through their words; their main focus is to influence the youth of the country by sharing various powerful speeches, quotes, the motto of their party, their manifesto, and their various schemes. The opposition party leaders hype the mistakes of the ruling party and criticize their various failures in schemes; on the other hand, the leaders of the ruling party influence the public by telling them about their schemes and the decision that their government is taking for their betterment. During elections, these platforms become the main place to generate votes by influencing the common peoples, the political leaders who share their ideology by writing blogs.
